Could you be a bit more specific? Are you talking about STP Topology
Change Notification BPDUs, which trigger this code path?

diff --git a/net/bridge/br_stp.c b/net/bridge/br_stp.c

Coincidentally the default values of 2 * br->forward_delay and br->bridge_ageing_time
are 1 order of magnitude apart from each other.

[  139.998310] br0: topology change detected, propagating
[  140.003490] br0: decreasing ageing time to 3000
[  175.193054] br0: restoring ageing time to 30000

What's the problem anyway?
